It is to announce availability of John the Ripper 1.7.3 Pro for Linux (stable release) and 126.96.36.199 Pro for Mac OS X (currently in public beta). The corresponding URLs are: http://www.openwall.com/john/pro/linux/ http://www.openwall.com/john/pro/macosx/ I've included more detail on each of these two versions below: 1. Besides the update to 1.7.3 (and thus including all of the improvements of that version in an extensively tested native package), new with John the Ripper 1.7.3 Pro for Linux is official support for Windows NTLM (MD4-based) and Mac OS X 10.4+ salted SHA-1 hashes. Also included for the first time is a pre-built RPM package for 64-bit capable systems, which makes use of 64-bit mode extended SSE2. This is a free upgrade for everyone who has purchased the product in the past (the new packages are found in the existing download directories). As usual, new copies/licenses may be purchased at: http://www.openwall.com/john/pro/linux/ I'd like to thank Alain Espinosa for the optimized NTLM code, and for kindly placing it in the public domain. This release of JtR Pro includes Alain's code with slight modifications, as well as replacement code for the password file loader; I am going to roll these into the next revision of the jumbo patch. 2. There's a beta version of John the Ripper Pro 188.8.131.52 for Mac OS X included with every new purchase, and free for everyone who has purchased the product in the past (it is found in the beta/ subdirectory in the existing download directories). As usual, new copies/licenses may be purchased at: http://www.openwall.com/john/pro/macosx/ Similarly to JtR Pro for Linux, besides the update to 1.7.3+, this version adds official support for Windows NTLM (MD4-based) and Mac OS X 10.4+ salted SHA-1 hashes, and it includes native support for 64-bit capable Intel CPUs on Mac OS X 10.5+ (Leopard) within the Universal binary, which makes use of 64-bit mode extended SSE2. Also included is the brand new XPWDUMP tool, which dumps password hashes from Mac OS X systems for subsequent auditing/cracking. As a bonus, the full source code is also provided (it was not provided with 1.7.2 Pro for Mac OS X, the focus of which was on packaging, but with so many exciting new features, we're also being generous and we do share the revised and enhanced source code this time, including several added source files). A "final" (non-beta) release of 184.108.40.206 Pro (or newer) for Mac OS X is coming soon. This will be a free upgrade for everyone who has purchased the product. I'd like to thank Jen Linkova aka Furry for her research into proper packaging for Mac OS X, and for XPWDUMP.
